We are already starting to see warm weather and higher temperatures in most places, even though we haven’t welcomed the summer season yet. Due to this change in the weather, it can be a great time to think about what needs to be done for your gas fireplace over the warmer months all the way up until Fall.
Once you’re armed with the information on how to upkeep and care for your fireplaces, it will be nothing but smooth sailing for the summer season.
Should I perform any maintenance before the new season?
Your owner’s manual includes instructions on routine maintenance such as glass cleaning and replacement of batteries in your remote receiver and handset. Scheduling a regular maintenance check with your dealer helps to ensure safe and efficient use as well as maximizing the service life of your fireplace.
When performing routine maintenance, please keep in mind that fireplace surfaces, in particular the glass viewing window, are extremely hot during operation and will remain hot for a period of time after the fireplace is turned off.
How can I heat my outdoor space for the cooler nights?
There are several heating options to consider when looking to heat an outdoor space. Whether it be a fire pit, space heater, or fireplace, you want an efficient heat source. A Valor radiant gas fireplace provides the heat you and your family need to replace the outdoor chill with comfortable, radiant warmth.
Radiant heating technology is widely regarded as the most comfortable, healthiest and natural form of heating available. Radiant heat is based in principle on the most primary source of heat we have – the sun.
What kind of upkeep does an outdoor fireplace require?
Cleaning of the exterior and glass are recommended on an annual basis. Please refer to your owner’s manual for additional maintenance tips.
